What is your most memorable wedding?
My own. That's why I fell in love with weddings!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fifties retro tea-length short gorgeous
What about your business are you most proud of?
Our Staff and Customers
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
If you can, PLAN AHEAD. Don't leave choosing and ordering your dress too late. Some designers will make a dress quickly (3-4 months) for an extra charge but the norm is 5-6 months from order date to be ready. Ideally, you should allow yourself at least 7 months before the wedding to look and order your dress, and this allows for any changes once the dress is made. Leaving it late can be stressful. Look too early, and the dress you fall in love with may no longer be available by the time you decide to order. We'd recommend yo start looking 12 to 9 months out from the wedding. This gives you time to decide on your dress, and order. If your wedding plans are last minute, and occasionally it happens, ask if their are any sample sale dresses you can buy immediately. You won't have a full choice of dresses but you may well get a nice dress and a real bargain.
What do you love most about your job?
Receiving the thanks of our brides together with images of their weddings. Knowing we've helped make their big day!
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
Fifties, retro, tea length and shorter style dresses.
